Bioavailability Enhancement Webinar Series: Enhancing Solubility Using Lipid-based Formulation Technology

September 26, 2013 - 7:00am

Lipid-based formulations (LBF) have become a well-established strategy to improve bioavailability and reduce food effect or variability of poorly soluble compounds. Although awareness of LBF technologies is widespread, systematic science-based formulation approaches are not common. Capsugel's Dosage Form Solutions' team discuss the variety of LBF possibilities, from solution or dispersions to SEDDS/SMEDDS and the key physicochemical and biological characteristics to be considered with the LBF approach. Case studies are used demonstrate the technologies’ range of application and the resultant solubility improvement achieved.
